ACCELERATING CANADA'S TRANSITION TO NET ZERO

The Transition Accelerator is a pan-Canadian charity that works to identify and advance viable pathways towards Canada's 2050 climate goals.

In our rapidly changing world, economic, social and technological changes are affecting sectors and regions across Canada. The Transition Accelerator collaborates with groups across the country to direct these disruptions towards solving business and social challenges in ways that move us closer to a net-zero future. Using our unique methodology, we work with innovative groups to create visions a socially and economically desirable net zero future and use those visions to determine the concrete steps that will enable Canada to get there.

Our current priorities are Canada’s hydrogen economy, electric vehicle market penetration, building decarbonization and electrification, grid integration and industrial policy.

Blueprint for Change:

Canada needs a new approach to empower innovators, improve policy, and shift debate around climate change in a more constructive direction. This is it.
